New Chair upholstery

This is my second attempt at re-upholstering a chair from the thrift store. This one is very similar to the other one I did here, but without the back cushion.  This chair was much easier for two reasons.  One, because I had done it before, and two because I didn't have to take the whole chair apart to put the new fabric on!
I will be doing a complete "how to" post next week to show you exactly what I did...

But for now the before pic
brown and dirty

fresh and clean

  I choose a blue/gray linen fabric, which is soft and delicate.  
Isn't she lovely?
